Pregnancy Grumbles!

Since misery loves company I thought it would be great if we all could post here when we are having bad days due to morning sickness, crazing hormones, awful indigestion, back aches, etc.

I'll start:D

I threw up today due solely (I think) to all the acid that rises in my stomach no matter what I eat. I had just had plain pasta with a teensy bit of tomato sauce and five minutes later I was at the toilet:(.

The heartburn can be so painful and I think it had been rising since last night so throwing up did make me feel better but just for good measure I ate a small bag of doritos afterward. It might not be good for my stomach but it did improve my mood LOL.

Marianna – A certain amount of shortness of breath is normal. Lethargy in your muscles could be something more. I’d talk to your Doc about it just to be safe. Ah, I see you did. Glad it’s a simple fix for now. Hopefully it won’t get any worse.

Hi Mari,


I'm sorry to hear about your low blood pressure troubles. I have had problems with this in the past, as well. One other suggestion I have, based on experience and what doctors have told me, is to ensure you are drinking plenty of fluids.

My hair texture changed too. My "head hair" is wonderful, even thicker than usual and so smooth! But unfortunately that also means that the body hair got thicker too!! And that's not good news for a brunette!!!!!


Anyways, if your DH doesn't object, I would try to shave less, you are heading for winter after all!! :)

i know that in the 3T, baby and uterus are big enough that they push on your diaphragm and reduce your lung capacity, so maybe that's what you're experiencing?


my current grumble was totally something i didn't see coming.

I hope you start feeling better soon! I tell you, those first 3 months were like a nightmare for me. I just felt so awful that I couldn't even warm up to the idea of the pregnancy!!! And to be honest, I didn't have it as hard as some of the other girls.... It's just tough. But as soon as it goes away, it will become a memory blur and in a few weeks you won't even think about it. Prepare yourself, you are about to start the 2T and it is THE BEST!!!


I do have one or two grumbles though... First it's my achy body... Geez... Most of the times I'm my usual self, but there are some movements that really hurt in very unsuspected places!!!!! But... I guess it's part of the game! :)


The other one is actually a question... Has any of you had this feeling of being "short of breath"? I've not fainted, but since about a week or so I have moments where I feel like there is not enough air around me, and my legs and arms get incredibly heavy... I wonder if it is

I do know what you mean! That 1T nausea & food misery is awful! Unfortunately I always have issues with food & eating throughout PG. I am not nauseous, thatnk my lucky stars, but I get very picky & certain smells & such still turn me off. I'll be glad to be done with PG & go back to having a

I feel the need to grumble a little today:). Okay, so I'm thrilled to be 12.5 weeks along in my pregnancy - couldn't be happier about that. But, I have to say, I'm ready for the "morning" sickness to go away any day now. I'm tired of eating being a chore rather than something I look forward to and enjoy. I'm tired of spending hours of the day feeling as though I'm on the verge of throwing up...worried about the simplest thing like brushing my teeth or taking a vitamin getting things started. Oh, and I'm tired of waking up at 4 or 5 am lately, needing to eat something, and the crackers beside the bed are never appealing. I do think it's getting better in some ways, but I slept like crud last night, so I think that's making me feel worse. Blech! Okay, end of rant!

I have been really sniffly, too! I'm actually glad to read that this can be a pregnancy symptom, and therefore doesn't necessarily mean I'm getting a cold.

Christine - I'm sorry that you have been achey! It is good news that your body is preparing to deliver your little munchkin, but we all deserve to grumble a little about the unpleasant side of pregnancy, and this is the right place:).
